Stop, Drop, and Roll!!

On the way home today, on the edge of Florence, on Hwy 72, I saw a sign in front of a church that said:


EXPOSURE TO THE "SON"
WILL PREVENT BURNING

I think that the most effective way we can share with people the love and compassion of Jesus is by holding the threat of eternal damnation over their head.

Really.

(Maybe that sounded a bit more cynical than I intended. Maybe.)

UPDATE: Actual picture.

  2. Actually, I don't think it's a CoC; I guess every denomination has their issues.

  3. I am the sign person at our church and I can literally tell you of at least 20 signs I will never put up, especially since it stirred up such negative thoughts from me, and I was a member at that church. Sectarianism and elitism is everywhere, and sometimes, I think Satan's having a hayday with that, because at the root of the problem is pride!
